How to ruin your life with social networking

Learn how to do it, as that's the only way to learn how not to do it. –

A few months ago, I brought you a round up of ill-conceived criminality with a Facebook twist: people who advertised their illegal misdeeds on the popular social networking site. Most of these miscreants eventually felt the long arm of the law. But not everything that goes wrong in this life is a criminal case; sometimes we manage to wreck our lives without getting the courts involved.

Thus, submitted for your approval, are a list of ways you can screw up your life via social networking sites, while still walking the streets a free man or woman. Many of these problems wouldn't have arisen if the Tweeters or Facebookers had taken a moment to think about how many people were reading their posts. Let them be an example, and steer clear!
